How To Zoom In On macOs With The Mouse Or Trackpad

Most people working with photos on a Mac know that you can make a pinch gesture on the trackpad to zoom in to an image.

A lesser know feature is the zoom setting you can enable in the accessibility options. When turned on, you can zoom in any part of your screen.

Zoom Settings

Enable Zoom In On macOS

Open the System Preferences application in your Applications folder or with Spotlight Search (command-space).

Then click on Zoom in the Accessibility panel. There you can set the option Use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom. I like to use the control key for this option.

Now you should be able to zoom in the screen by holding the control key and using your trackpad's scroll gesture (or mouse for that matter).
